Welcome to Nijmegen

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Nijmegen!

Nijmegen (official page/Wikipedia) is the oldest city in the Netherlands. Its history goes back to Roman times.

Nijmegen is a lively city with a pleasant mix of old and new: you will find historic buildings and sites, as well as examples of modern architecture. The city is situated on the river Waal. Very recently, a spectacular water management project 'Room for the River' was completed, involving a change of the course of the river and the creation of an artificial island.

The city of Nijmegen hosts the Radboud University and part of the Arnhem-Nijmegen University of Applied Sciences (HAN). WiPSCE will be organized by the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences of Radboud University.

Conference venue

The conference will be held at various locations in the historic centre of the city. The main conference venue, cultural centre De Lindenberg, offers nice views over the river Waal and is within walking distance of several historical sites.

Traveling to Nijmegen

The city of Nijmegen is situated close to the German border. It has excellent highway conections to Germany and to other parts of the Netherlands.

Nijmegen can be reached easily by train. The city's main railway station is served by a direct train from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. Visitors traveling from Germany usually travel through the nearby city of Arnhem.
